It's been a while since you've heard how Cole Bear and Strickster are doing, but I assure you that they are fine.
In fact, Cole Bear recently got a new sweatshirt. It's a hoodie that makes him look like Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Which combines two of Lex's favorite things: Cole Bear + Toothless = Love.
By the way, Lex never refers to these movies or books or cartoons by their proper name. He calls the whole series "Dragons of Riders." Now you know, and you guys can talk about it. He's super excited for the new movie. Two more days until it hits theaters! I assume that Cole Bear will come with us, wearing his Dragon hoodie.
Strickster also got some new duds. He's got a new tank top and shorts set for summer. Connor wanted to make sure he could beat the heat in some cool new clothes.
And they both got a new tent, so they are all ready to go camping. Are we planning to go camping? No, not so much, but the kids wanted their bears to be ready so that they could come with us when we go.
That's Cole Bear on the left, and Strickster on the right. Just in case you were having trouble telling them apart.
